Floyd Mayweather Jr. practices what he preaches ... hours after getting into a fight with T.I. and telling him to "control your bitch," the champ went to a strip club to show how exactly how HE exercises ultimate control.
Floyd showed up at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club in Vegas at around 3 AM ... this after getting into a now-epic fight with T.I. at a nearby Fatburger.
We're told Floyd showed up with "bricks of money" -- making it rain to the point where one stripper was seen carting her cash away in a pillowcase.
2 Chainz, Flo Rida and Benzino cheered on as Floyd did what he does.
Nursing school is now more than a dream.
I'm Not Looking to Bang T.I.'s Wife
5/25/2014 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather is NOT trying to get tricky with T.I.'s wife ... in fact, Floyd is telling friends he's shocked the rapper tried to pick a fight -- 'cause he thought they were all friends.
We're told Floyd never felt like there was any beef with T.I. -- nor does he want to be romantically involved with Tip's wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle.
Our sources say Money is very upset over being falsely accused of any shenanigans -- and feels it was ridiculous for T.I. to get mad at him ... since it was Tiny's choice to hangout while in Vegas.
We're told Floyd's only motive was continuing his friendship with Mr. and Mrs. T.I.

5/25/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
T.I. never intended to get into a fight with Floyd Mayweather Sunday night in Las Vegas ... sources close to the rapper tell TMZ -- but Tip was definitely pissed about Money possibly getting close to his wife.
Tameka "Tiny" Cottle didn't appear to be near the fight last night -- but she was in Vegas -- and hours before posted a picture on Instagram while hanging out with Floyd's daughter ... calling the young girl her "new boo."
We're told T.I. was upset about the photo -- and others she posted -- and felt it was disrespectful to him ... so he planned to confront Floyd in person.
Once they got face-to-face though, T.I. flipped out when Floyd said "control your bitch" and started swinging outside Fatburger.
Shades of Sterling and Stiviano ... minus the racism.

Brawl Erupts on Vegas Strip
5/25/2014 2:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
T.I. took a swing at Floyd Mayweather Jr. and it caused a chair-tossing brawl in the Fatburger on the Vegas Strip early Sunday morning ... TMZ has learned ... and we've obtained multiple videos.
According to several witnesses ... Floyd was eating inside the restaurant when T.I. walked up and started jawing at Floyd.
It's unclear what caused the beef, but we're told T.I. swung at Floyd ... their giant bodyguards jumped in to separate them ... and then the all out melee began.
At one point you hear Floyd telling at T.I., "control your bitch."
Las Vegas PD arrived just as Floyd was leaving and we're told T.I. was already gone.
Police confirm a Fatburger employee was slashed during the fight, but he refused treatment and did not want to cooperate with investigating officers. In other words ... no snitching.
A rep for T.I. had no comment about the fight.
Less than a month ago, T.I. and Game were in the middle of a near riot with LAPD officers outside Supperclub.

17-year-old Michael Jackson fan Brett Nichols didn't just win his school's talent show with his MJ routine ... he caught the eye of MJ's estate ... who have invited the kid to Las Vegas for a show ... TMZ has learned.
A rep for the Jackson estate tells TMZ ... the executors saw Nichols' impressive performance and were blown away ... so they put together a package to send to Nichols to show how much they liked his act.
The rep says they sent Nichols the new MJ album "Xscape" (no iTunes cards?) and an invitation for Brett and his family (mom, dad and sister) to all attend a performance of Michael Jackson ONE in Las Vegas.
We're told they contacted Nichols' principal, who in turn told Nichols and his family this afternoon ... who were predictably beyond excited.
Much better than some stupid trophy.

DJ Skribble better get used to it ... someone saying he should be playing in a bathroom stall is not grounds for winning a lawsuit -- that's what a famous Las Vegas club is claiming anyway in legal docs.
We broke the story ... Skribble -- aka Scott Ialacci -- sued Chateau Nightclub claiming its managers broke his contract by dumping him as house DJ ... and slandered him by saying he should be spinning in a bathroom.
Now the club's responding in legal docs ... saying the bathroom comment was just one guy's opinion, and can't be proved false since it's just his personal preference.
Chateau claims it fulfilled its end of the contract -- paying Skribble per gig for up to one year -- and wants a judge to 86 the whole lawsuit.

Tyrese tells TMZ, he picked Game up Wednesday in L.A. and made the day trip in his brand new customized ride -- what he's calling the world's first ever "Rolls Royce Phantom Sprinter" van.
The whip's stacked too -- complete with several Apple TVs, a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac Mini, custom Rolls rims and grill, crazy neon "Transformers" lights, a phone charger at each seat, Internet, and even a heated floor.
Tyrese says as soon as they grubbed down at Bellagio they immediately hightailed it back to L.A. Because, why not.

You Can Count on Us!
5/6/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ben Affleck can keep doubling down and splitting Aces in Sin City ... because he just got offered a blackjack safe haven where he won't be 86'd for card counting.
Derek Stevens owns The D Casino Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel in downtown Vegas -- and he wants Ben to bring his chips from the strip without worrying about getting swooped up by security.
TMZ broke the story -- Ben was escorted out of the Hard Rock Casino last week after security labeled him an "advantage player," believing he was counting cards in blackjack.
Stevens tells us, "The D Las Vegas is not afraid of Ben Affleck winning a few hands in a row," adding, "Ben can come play blackjack and not worry about security walking him out!"
Heading off the strip doesn't mean you lose whale status -- The D can accommodate high rollers up to $10K per hand.
Plus Golden Gate has the best $2.99 shrimp cocktail in town. It used to be $1.99 -- damn inflation.

Rather than sit at a dingy blackjack table and risk getting thrown out ... Chumlee from "Pawn Stars" spent his time far more wisely in Sin City this weekend -- at the Tao Beach pool getting flashed by a hot chick for no reason at all.
Well, we can think of at least one reason for the exposure.
Screw Card Counting
Casinos are the Villains

Don Cheadle doesn't know jack about card-counting, but he's definitely on Ben Affleck's side ... because he clearly thinks the casinos are the real bad guys
Our photog got Don leaving Locanda Portifino Friday in Santa Monica ... and the Oscar winner was on him game. He knew it wasn't illegal to count cards, and he doesn't feel the least bit sorry for casinos which he thinks cross the ethical line all the time.
TMZ broke the story ... Ben was booted from the Hard Rock for allegedly counting cards at the blackjack table.
So, we gotta ask ...
